The Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life Literacy Innovation Award honours innovation in the creation and delivery (or in the development, implementation and delivery) of adult literacy or adult-integrated family literacy programs delivered by a community organization in Canada. The adult-focused literacy program makes a positive contribution to the lives of the participants as well as the community and could serve as a model for other organizations to adapt.
There is one (1) top award of $20,000 and up to four (4) honourable mention awards in the amount of $5,000 each. The awards as granted can be invested into the program and/or applied to operating funds.
